Community development

Community Development at Nillumbik works with community using Asset Based Community Development, a globally adopted approach that recognises and builds on the strengths, gifts, talents and resources of individuals and communities to create strong, inclusive and sustainable communities.

Community Development:

  • Discovers what's strong not wrong
  • Places community at the centre of local decision making
  • Activates individual and community participation
  • Builds on community leadership
  • Strengthens local connection & relationships

See below for a range of information, resources and programs offered to support you and your community group to be empowered, connected and resilient.
